History of The Advocates Law


Attorney Matthew Driggs founded the personal injury firm in 1991 and began practicing law in Salt Lake City, Utah. Seven years later, he partnered with Kenneth Bills. Steven Day joined the firm two years later, and the firm officially became known as Driggs, Bills and Day. For the first several years, the attorneys handled general litigation, personal injury cases and product liability cases. Over the next two years, the firm acquired clients injured during the Fen Phen diet medication controversy. The firm expanded exponentially while representing thousands of clients, which necessitated opening offices throughout cities in the northwest. Their professional reputation soon spread, and the firm began receiving referrals from associates. By 2009, the attorneys became known as “The Advocates.” The term signified the firm’s determination and devotion in fighting for their clients involved in various injury cases.

By 2012, the firm expanded into Seattle and became known as the “Advocates Law.”

Various commendations awarded to the attorneys include the title Super Lawyer and recognition in the Utah Business Magazine. Attorneys associated with the firm have extensive backgrounds in a variety of legal areas ranging from insurance defense to prosecution.
